    Think of this six-day road trip as a crash course in the natural wonders and iconic sights between the borders of Arizona, Utah and Nevada. The journey is a mix of environments, from desert landscapes to lush forests and the bright lights of the Las Vegas Strip. Enjoy the road trip year round, but prepare for excessive heat in the summer and an unexpected chill (and perhaps even light snow) during fall and winter.
